While Dragon Age: Origins let you choose between multiple playable races, that feature was removed in Dragon Age 2 to make way for a human named Hawke. Well, that feature is now back in
Dragon Age 3 Dragon Age: Inquisition, with elves and dwarves added to the lineup of playable races once more.
Other new features include the first appearance of mounts in the series, which will allow players to traverse huge (but “not open-world”) areas. BioWare is reportedly trying hard to drive exploration in the game, “something that, frankly, BioWare hasn’t done in a while”, according to executive producer Mark Darrah.
These new details and more were revealed as part of a GameInformer exclusive which, as is always the case, has been eagerly data-mined by everybody else for the salient points and then spread around the internet like wildfire. Forbes’ Erik Kain has highlighted some of the major ones here.
Some pre-alpha gameplay has also been released, which you can find below.
